I’ve wanted to make a good fanned fret guitar since my first one attempted almost three years ago. Man has time flew. Anyways with more experience under my belt and some guidance from some of the great friends and builders I’ve met online, I’ve decided to give this another try.
Aaron Brown from Blackwater guitars has blind slotted two boards for me which are made out of some roasted maple and Sabah ebony I’ve sent him.
This will also be the first time I attemp an inlay. I’m doing a tribute to one of my favorite games growing up FF7 and will be inlaying Cloud Strife’s iconic Buster Sword.
Body: Clear alder
Fretboard: Sabah ebony 25-26 in Fan
Pickups: BlackWater Prototype A8
Finished with Odies oil and Wax
